Chocolate and Pistachio Biscotti

I have a soft spot for biscuits. They make me think of my Nanna. Growing up we’d visit often and she’d always make these little bite sized biscuits, biskuttini tal – lewz which translates to biscuit of almonds and that they were. Warm and chewy, with the smell and taste of almond and a single almond kernel placed in the centre of each…just waiting to be dipped into a hot cup of coffee or tea.

Well, today friends. I am not going to teach you how to make Almond biscuits because let’s face it, Nanna’s biscuits tasted so good due to the fact they were 3/4 sugar and 1/4 almond extract. I will tell you how to make another kind of biscuit, a healthier one, that won’t make you feel as guilty and also perfect for pairing with a cup of coffee or tea.

Roasted Red Pepper Prawns with Chickpeas.

Almost all of my most favourite memories involve the beach. As a kid, most of my shoes carried sand in them, camping was always by a beach, I chose beach fitness for school sport on Thursdays and I was practically a marine biologist by Grade 3, able to rattle off the name of any crab or sea creature lurking in the rocks.  When I moved to Canada I shook the sand from my shoes, but it never left my soul. “Fish and chips” will always fit my macros, actually ANY seafood will and this is how I got to making a prawn (or shrimp as it’s called here) dish. I’ve been missing the heat, got all nostalgic and craved seafood.
With that, I bring you…

Moroccan Pork Tenderloin.

I was never a huge fan of pork unless it was called bacon…but I am so glad I tried this recipe. The recipe was actually given to me by a friend who insisted I make it and I have never looked at pork  the same since.
